It's a really good apartment, with a fantastic location and decoration.
You are where everything happens, but you go in and you have peace, soundproofing is perfect.
Only two little things could improve, lights in the upper terrace and more electricity plugs.
Almost forgot to mention the sympathy and availability.
clean bright home from home!
We have visited Tavira several times and this is by far the best accommodation we have stayed at. The location within Tavira is second to none.
We met Rachel who welcomed us to the apartment and showed us around. Each room is of a high standard, the apartment was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and a credit to the owners.
The rooftop terrace has fantastic views of Tavira and the view from the living room window in particular is a lasting memory.
We would definitely recommend this property albeit with a slight selfish reluctance in case it was booked for when we wanted to book again!
Wonderful central apartment
This is a fantastic apartment right in the centre of gorgeous Tavira with stunning views over the Roman bridge and beyond. It has been fantastically renovated to a very high standard with everything you could need for a perfect holiday. Very fresh, clean and tastefully decorated. The lounge has panoramic views over the town and there are 3 good sized bedrooms and 3 shower rooms with aircon throughout. The rooftop terrace is a great space with fantastic views over the whole of Tavira. Step outside and you are a few steps from the bridge to one side and the beautiful Bishops Square to the other. Perfect apartment. Can't wait to return. 😊
We stayed at this apartment for a week, it was perfect. Had everything you could wish for. Home from home. Will be booking again in the future..Thankyou Rachel
the apartment is even better than the pictures it is obviously not for small children or the elderly due to the stairs but otherwise it is faultless
we were even allowed to stay longer on our last day as no one was booked in until the day after this really made a real difference to our to last day as we were still able to go to the beach and relax knowing we had a base to shower change and pack before our 7pm flight
Le plus bel emplacement de Tavira
Appartement de grand confort (hormis l'absence de lave vaisselle), climatisation puissante, très bien équipé, comme refait à neuf, doubles vitrages (nécessaire dans un quartier touristique où pas mal de passage et joueur de xylophone devant le pont tous les soirs). Superbe terrasse avec vue à 360° imprenable sur le pont romain et sur la vieille ville.
Un endroit unique. Un rêve.
THE BEAUTIFUL TOWN OF TAVIRA When staying at Apartment Romana, you are right in the middle of the action! Once known as the capital of the Algarve, Tavira stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history and wonderful architecture. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants - perfect for lazy lunches or a glass or 2!. On one side of the town there is a large square which has entertainment in the summer months, and by crossing the Roman Bridge to the other side of the town, you will find a little more life in the evenings with a great selection of restaurants tucked away down the streets and a few later opening café/bars. Features and things to visit include the many churches (37 in total!), the Town Castle and the Camara Obscura with its stunning aerial views. There is a range of shops to explore, as well as the old market building recently restored with cafes, shops and artisan, and also the traditional indoor market selling locally grown produce and fresh fish. To enjoy and see the full Tavira aspect, you can take the passenger train which follows a set route around the town, or you can personalize your experience by taking a ‘TUK TUK’ tour in the small vehicles for 2 – 6 persons. Tavira is the perfect central location, with great bus, train and road networks connecting along the whole of the Algarve Coastline. LOCAL BEACH - ILHA DE TAVIRA The Beach Island of Tavira is just stunning. As a natural island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa, it is reached by catching a ferry from the main Tavira Harbour or towards Quatro Aguas. A excellent range of facilities is available including beach bars and a great selection of restaurants suiting most tastes. You can also hire sunbeds and sunshades. During the high summer season, there are also water sports and fun activities for all to enjoy. The sands are lovely and white, the sea is calm and together, these ingredients provide a wonderful tropical beach atmosphere akin to the Caribbean! OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO …….by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or natures trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car or by day trip coach (around 45 minutes). From this property it is also easy to take a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is not far, and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and excellent shopping. You can travel by car, or use public transport to get to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and from there take the 15 minute ferry crossing across the Guadiana River between Spain and Portugal. For the more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is approx 170km away and for budding historians the Castle at Castro Marim is worth a look. GOLF This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 6 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and have fantastic scenery and sea views. The prestigious Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus, whilst a little costly, offers the height of golfing luxury. Travelling East to towards the Spanish Border, the challenging courses of Castro Marim and the Ballesteros Signature Course Quinta do Vale both come highly recommended.
